When homeowners finish their basement with drywall and wood studs, they've often created a DIY time bomb that's just waiting to go off. The reason? Because drywall (even "mold-resistant" drywall) does not have a long-standing warranty against mold growth and moisture. Over time, these materials can and will become damaged by mold, moisture, and mildew. Meanwhile your wood studs can also rot and grow mold, and moisture will become trapped under your carpet and sub floor. Eventually, many homeowners are forced to rip the whole thing out, dispose of the waste, and start all over again.
Applying Concrete Treat as a concrete sealer before finishing the basement can prevent damage to your finished space. Once sprayed on your walls, Concrete Treat fills the small pores and openings on your concrete and hardens into a glasslike bond within the pores of the concrete.
This stops the moisture that would otherwise seep into the basement through the concrete walls and promote mold growth on your drywall and other organic surfaces. Learn about Concrete Treating today!
Concrete basements are unique spaces in the home. Unlike the floors upstairs, they have fewer windows, more utilities present and, often, lower ceilings. Most notably, however, is that basements are unique from the rest of the home because they're located underground and surrounded by concrete. This leads to two unfortunate facts:
Remember- if your finished basement is ruined by moisture and humidity-- this is a problem that you paid a lot of money for.
The solution to a damp basement is easy, non-toxic, and long-lasting: Concrete Treat. Used in both new construction and already existing basements, it can be sprayed on to damp or dry basement walls and is ready to work for you in just 2-4 hours. Concrete Treat works on both the basement walls and the floor, holding back the damaging, uncomfortable moisture and humidity that can otherwise easily pass through.
Concrete Treat is ready after just one application, and once it's been applied, it can be coated, painted over, or covered with drywall. When Concrete Treat is sprayed on a basement wall, it hardens in 2-4 hours, creating a glasslike surface that completely blocks humidity from passing through the concrete into your basement or crawl space.
This spray-on concrete silicate barrier is non-caustic during application and is non-flammable. Unlike waterproof paints, which usually have no warranty against mold, it is completely inorganic and will not support mold growth.
Additionally, Concrete Treat interferes with mold growth by restricting mold's ability to eat the lime that seeps into the home through the concrete along with water vapor.
Concrete Treat does not peel off in a couple years like waterproof paints often do, and it dries clear, with no yellowing or discoloration. Available in convenient 5-gallon bucket sizes, it's ready to use immediately. Just what you need!
